Birds in the Sky!

We love going to the beach that is just a 4 minute drive from us to catch sunset. We better go now while we can because before long we will be full of seasonal tourists. Yes the "snow birds" will be coming! Thus the beaches will be crowded, and the restaurants, and the roads.... Anyway when we were driving out to see sunset, the sky was so clear as it has been lately. I said it won't be much of an interesting sunset with out some clouds. Well the sunset was fine, but the birds were out like you wouldn't believe. When I was trying to get a pic some pelicans diving of course they dove just off screen all three of them, or my camera delayed just enough. Aghhh!

I did get them skimming though, and it was so funny because it was almost like it was raining birds, they were all dropping into the water. Pelicans weren't the only birds diving for fish this evening! Here are a few that I was able to get a photo of!

as the sun is setting...

It almost looks like a shark!

These look prehistoric...

Enjoy other Sky Watch Friday photos from all around the planet!!


  1. Beautiful pictures! I love the huge splash those pelicans make when they land in the water.

  2. These are so gorgeous! I really miss living on a beach; the sunsets are so spectacular.

  3. oh, i like those photos very much with the birds flying by or diving down to the water! You are so right, some of the birds look like prehistoric ones. Happy Skywatching!

  4. Your gorgeous sunset over the Gulf are heavenly, Lyndsey. Nice captures of the pelicans diving into the sea.
    As a child I lived in Pass-a-grill for awhile and loved it.
